i still don't quite get this. if i invite 20 ppl over to watch 'Lost'
on Weds night isn't that a group showing? i'm not profiting, peddling
or gaining in any way other than enjoying a show with a 'group' of
and if group showing is illegal then how do sports bars and public
places with televisions playing get away with it? when i go to Smoky
Bones BBQ for dinner i see several tvs playing various programs and
there is definitely a large group there. or is that ok as long as it
and if that's the case then won't renting movies from Blockbuster
become illegal if i'm there picking out a movie with my family? it
will be a group viewing when we get home...
unemployment should virtually disappear in the next couple years
because everyone will be able to get a job in some area of law
inforcement so that there are enough officers to enforce this
